One of the world's longest indoor roller coasters is coming to Epcot, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World.
According to a Disney Parks' blog post Sunday, the long-anticipated "Guardians of the Galaxy"-themed roller coaster — one of the world's longest enclosed coasters — will be a one-of-a-kind family attraction once it's added to Future World at Epcot.
“As we build upon its core mission of optimism and hope to inspire the world, the real will become fantastic and the fantastic will become real, in whole new ways at Epcot,” according to Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts.
The roller coaster announced was made Sunday, the same weekend Walt Disney World and Disneyland raised ticket prices.
"Regular" ticket pricing is up $4 to $119 for adults and $113 for kids at the Magic Kingdom park in Orlando. On the most expensive days — the peak visitation times of the year — parents will need to shell out $5 more to $129 for themselves and $123 for children. On the cheapest days, prices rose by $2 to $109 for adults and $103 for kids on the cheapest days.
Parking prices also rose, the Orlando Sentinel reports, by $2 to $22. Preferred parking will be $5 more, now $45.
